Postdoctoral Research Assistant
College of Life Sciences, Dundee University

GRADE 7 (£28,839 - £35,469)

A postdoc position is available immediately in the group of Gordon
Simpson at the College of Life Sciences in Dundee, Scotland. The aim of
this position is to dissect the mechanism by which alternative
polyadenylation (APA) is controlled.
You will be working in a highly international research group that is
passionate about working with RNA. We combine questions on plant
development with state-of-the-art analysis of RNA processing and
collaborate with other research groups in Dundee focused on
computational biology and human RNA biology. For more information about
the group see: [Only registered users see links. ]
The post-holder will take molecular genetic approaches to dissect
mechanisms of APA control. As part of a £1 million BBSRC-funded research
programme, the post-holder will work closely with a computational
biologist, who will analyse next generation sequence data for APA. This
aspect of the project is a collaboration with Geoff Barton’s group:
[Only registered users see links. ] therefore an ability to work well in
a team is an important requirement of this post and a basic feature of
Gordon Simpson’s group.
Training, as required, will be provided in a well-equipped, well-funded
and supportive environment enabling the successful candidate to extend
skills and expertise. The College has excellent facilities for all
aspects of research, including in-house and easily accessible services,
such as cloning, proteomics, microscopy, DNA sequencing, oligo synthesis
and preparation of growth media. State-of-the-art plant growth
facilities are provided by SCRI.
This position is suited for a candidate with a recent PhD and a strong
background in RNA or Arabidopsis research, with first author
publications in good scientific journals. The candidate should be able
to demonstrate an aspiration to move on to an independent faculty
position after their postdoctoral work.
The position is available immediately and is for 3-years. The starting
salary is a minimum of Grade 7, point 29 (£28,839).
Dundee is a centre of excellence in life sciences research and combines
quality of life with quality of science. It lies close to areas of
outstanding natural beauty, including large sandy beaches and island and
mountain wilderness. The culturally rich cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh
can be reached in little over an hour. Rainfall charts show that Dundee
is one of the most sunny & dry places in the UK, see:
